Was this Judith Martin, the News 12 anchor who was reported by News 12 to have passed away on Friday? I noticed lots of pictures of her on the beach in News 12's photo montage.

It is reported elsewhere that Ms. Martin died at home, so probably a different person IMO.

So do they know who it is, or how this person died?
